6:17 am
in. and both cars, the car that hit the trooper and car that was pulled over and car that was pulled over, spun around facing the opposite direction. the car that the trooper pulled over went from the right side of the road pulled off in the shoulder all the way to the left side across four or five lanes and then caught fire. that is how bad the impact was for this crash and the driver that was pulled over also needed to get to the hospital, so a very, very bad accident last night. of course, it is dark out. who knows why. the driver had no option but to stop and it was a female driver and we saw her in the helicopter shots talking to police on the scene trying to explain how it happened and what happened and what was going on. the trooper flown here to cooper and really nothing trauma surgeons could do. >> yeah, it is emotional steve, for sure. we will also in a little bit try to get an update on the
